I'm looking to buy one or two glue guns for a project i'm doing involving
schoolchildren. We're going to be gluing a variety of materials including
polystyrene and i'm concious that I don't want to run the risk of any kids
burning themselves. I have a few questions:
Should I be looking at cold melt guns? Does this actually mean that the glue
isn't so hot it will burn skin?
If so, is the bond as strong as it would be with a hot melt gun?
Does one use a different type of glue stick?
Would a hot melt gun melt the polystyrene anyway? I need to know this as
there will be some finishing work done by adults.
It would be great if you could recommend suppliers and model(s). I'm not
looking to spend 100s of pounds but i'd like something reasonable robust and
don't need to go for the cheapest.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
